KO
  • GOOOOOAAAAALLL!!!!! There is the breakthrough for the Albiceleste!!! Messi drops a shoulder and darts through midfield, before threading a pass through the eye of a needle into the box. Molina latches onto it and steps beyond Blind, before stabbing the ball beyond Noppert to put Argentina 1-0 up!!! That's what we've been waiting for!

  • Acuna is also shown a yellow card for the incident, ruling him out of the semi-final - should Argentina get there, of course.

  • Depay looks to flick the ball over Romero's head, but the centre-back wildly sticks out an arm, which the ball hits, and rightfully receives a yellow card.

  • The Dutch look to the skies as they bring off Blind for towering PSV striker Luuk de Jong, who will certainly provide them with more of an outlet to aim at up front.

  • GOOOAAALLL!!!! Argentina double their lead!!! Messi steps up with all the calmness and composure we've come to expect, and buries his penalty right into the corner. Noppert is rooted to the spot, but Argentina certainly aren't, as they've got at least one foot in the semi-finals now!

  • GOOOOAAALLL!!! Hang on a moment!!! Berghuis curls a belter of a cross from deep and Weghorst races to the front post. His flicked, glancing header is an absolute peach, and bounces beyond Emi Martinez into the far corner! 2-1, and the Dutch are certainly back in this one now!

    Netherlands
    Yellow card
    NED - Steven Berghuis
    88'
  • It's all going off here!!! Ake fouls Paredes, who reacts by blasting the ball straight into the crowd on the Dutch bench. He's soon set upon by all of them and is barged over by Van Dijk, and the referee again has to wade in to separate the players, and books Paredes before the game can continue.
    Argentina
    Yellow card
    ARG - Leandro Paredes

  • Messi is booked by the referee for dissent after arguing against the free-kick being given, and showing how nervous Argentina are about this chance.
